Police nab suspected killer of NYSC member in Kaduna

The Police Command in Kaduna State on Saturday said it had arrested the suspected murderer of a National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member serving in the state.

The command’s Public Relation Officer, ASP Aliyu Usman, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), that the kingpin was arrested on Wednesday.

Usman said the suspect, Adamu Jibrin, 22, had made useful statement to the police on the offence.

“We recovered six loaded cartridges, two knives, two cutlasses, a double-barreled gun and one Samsung phone, in his room at Unguwar Yero Area in Kaduna,” Usman said.

The late NYSC member, Lawal Kontagora, was killed on October 17. Two  suspects were arrested on October 20.

According to him, the kingpin is still under investigation, but the two other suspects have already been charged to court.
